  [SRU] pitivi crashed with SIGSEGV in __GI___pthread_mutex_lock()

Status in “pitivi” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  Some users, mostly users who have installed more software like eg.
  GStreamer codecs needed for common formats, are unable to start Pitivi
  on 14.04 LTS, because of a crasher.

  [Test Case]

  Start pitivi on affected computer.

  [Regression Potential]

  The original single patch fixed the issue but caused another window to
  pop up behind the Pitivi window, which was a regression for fresh
  install users. The new patch set both fixes the crasher and improves
  the overall Pitivi usage like timeline drawing without regressions.


  I just upgraded to Kubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) yesterday, and pitivi
  stopped working. It segfaults immediately, with the following stdout

  lmilano@grisell:crash$ pitivi
  Missing soft dependency:
  - pycanberra not found on the system
      -> enables sound notifications when rendering is complete
  Segmentation fault (core dumped)

  Apport is not popping up, even if I launch pitivi from the main menu
  in KDE. But it did, just once, and it dumped a report in /var/crash -
  I will try to upload that file manually.
